FSI-0MSAcad. year: 2017/2018
Students learn to work with MATLAB. The algoritmization, based on the use of specific resources provided by MATLAB, is gradually discussed. The teaching takes the form of demonstrations and experimenting on the computer. Students will verify the level of reached knowledge by the processing of two semestral projects.
Learning outcomes of the course unit

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course is taught as a seminary which is focused on practical learning material.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The processing of two semestral projects is the condition for credit granting.
Language of instruction
The aim of the course is to teach programming in MATLAB and to create user-friendly applications with an efficient use of the built-in tools. This is done by gradually acquiring practical MATLAB, which leads to the processing of the assigned unassisted projects.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
Active participation in the seminars.
Type of course unit
seminars in computer labs
